Dr William Dickson MBE FRSE FRSC
William Dickson, always known as Bill, was born in St Abb’s, Berwickshire, on 23rd January, 1905, the son of a lobster fisherman, and died at Lowestoft in his eighty-eighth year on 21st October 1992. He never ceased to be proud of his grandfather, his father and the other fishermen of the village, according them as much respect as he ever did to Niels Bohr, Max Born, C T R Wilson and other great scientists. For Bill, quality of character and mind, high ideals and standards were what really mattered, not origins or worldly success.
